Vinyl is back! In recent years, vinyl records have had a resurgence in popularity, and with it, a renewed demand for vintage record player stands. Explore our collection of vintage record player stands here at Vinterior today and see how you can add a unique look to your home.
Vintage record player stands: what goes around comes aroundAlthough turntables in one format or another have been around since the late Victorian era, it wasn’t until the late 1940s that record players as we know them today came into use.
By the late 1950s, mass production of popular music on vinyl led to a surge of interest in investment in record players and through the 1960s and 1970s, scarcely a home in the country was without a record player in their living room.
Of course, with the popularity of the record player came a demand for somewhere convenient to put the machine itself along with all of the albums that the family had bought. This demand gave birth to the record player stand – a dedicated piece of furniture designed to support the record player itself, and also the records and corresponding equipment.
During the intervening years, as records fell out of favour the record player stand began to be used for other purposes or to be removed altogether from living rooms. However, with today’s renewed interest in vinyl, many have now been dusted off and lovingly restored for a fresh lease of life.
A vintage record player stand, at first glance, may appear to be simply a shelving unit or sideboard, however on closer inspection you’ll notice that a classic record player stand will have a flat upper surface on which the record player would be placed along with a lower shelf or cabinet where records could be stored.
Although often minimalist in appearance, vintage record player stands have a stylish appearance thanks to their attractive legs which are often metal for a retro look. Made from solid, durable woods, vintage record player stands are a valuable addition to your home as both a decorative and practical item.
Investing in vintage record player stands?Whether you are searching for a stand on which to display your retro record player or whether you simply want a piece of durable and stylish furniture to offer a little extra storage and display space in your home, a vintage record player stand is an attractive and versatile piece of furniture. You may even wish to use a vintage record player stand as a coffee table, giving you the opportunity to store magazines or books underneath.
Thanks to its unusual appearance, it will be a talking point in your home, creating an exciting focal point in your living room, dining room or any other space. A vintage record player stand will bring unique flair and personality into any room.
